3 Reasons to Let a Staffing Agency Screen New Employees

Many businesses have begun outsourcing their new employee screening process, and for good reason. If your company isn’t aware of all the necessary steps, you could end up wasting time and money without realizing it. Many staffing agencies, such as First Team Staffing, have lots of experience with both finding new employees and conducting the required background checks. Read on for the top three reasons why hiring a staffing agency to screen new employees is the more beneficial choice. 

A Staffing Agency Saves You Time

In business, any wasted time can cost you. If you decide to screen new employees yourself, you can waste time in several ways, including: 

  • Finding irrelevant information that does not affect the employee’s performance
  • The information you find is not always in an easy-to-read format
  • Getting records from courthouses or police stations can be tedious and costly
  • Acquiring awareness of cooperation hiring laws is not easy, and you may likely have to hire a lawyer instead

Reaching out to a third-party expert ensures that you receive quicker results while your staff has the time to spend on tasks at which they can excel. 

We Provide Privacy Assurance

Even if your potential employee has nothing to hide, some people are still uncomfortable knowing that their new employer is looking into their past and potentially judging them on it. When a third-party staffing agency is hired to screen new employees, they handle sensitive information carefully and provide a comfortable boundary between the employee and their new company. 

We Ensure Accessibility

Staffing agencies and screening companies are well-educated on the protocols and connections required to collect background information on new employees. They know what details are important, unimportant, and they can spot details inexperienced screeners might overlook. They also know how to acquire information from other states, which can often involve different protocols. Ultimately, resources are available to a staffing agency that can help them screen new employees most efficiently.
